"REALLY enjoyed this book. The heroine is a fascinating character with a truly original backstory - former suffragette/ one of the first female police officers. The book zips along nicely and satisfies on every level. It could be argued that this is an important book - detailing a huge step in the woman's movement - and the author very cleverly allows this to inform the character without giving the reader a lecture. Quality from start to finish!"

Behind the book

The historical background of these books is the period during and after the First World War when many women were drafted into occupations where they had previously never been accepted. One of these occupations was the birth of the first voluntary women's police services set up by the suffragette societies at the start of the First World War after they abandoned their militant tactics.

These early women police are rarely mentioned or recognised in official police histories and I wanted to rectify that
